This month is all about mixed media! Our August 2021 Basic box features graphite paste from Kuretake. This brand new product is a high-viscosity medium that has the metallic shine and matte texture of traditional graphite but in liquid form. You can use it directly from the bottle for a dark finish or dilute it to create a value range. This box also includes Royal Talens Plakkaatverf Gouache in deep green and two Zebra Sarasa fineliners in spring green and silver. For highlights, we included a Koh-i-Noor Gioconda white charcoal pencil. We also included a Princeton Velvetouch chisel blender in size 4, and a Hahnemuhle Britannia pad. This custom 4x9" pad is hot press, 300 GSM, and is great for a variety of mediums, offering a smooth and absorbent finish.
